Sparse Feature Optical Flow

GroG's picture

I've added "OpticalFlow" filter to OpenCV (worke branch), and here seeing throuhg work-e's kinect eye - you can see worke-e turning left ... or was it right ? :) 

So to make this useful for collision avoidance, some work will need to be put into it.  Like describing the direction vector.  Also some semi-intelligent pruning of data. 

It starts by getting good features to track. Which itself has a few parameters to tweak.


Lloyd, an evolved InMoov for Telepresence and Augmented Reality

It's been a goal of mine(ours?) for a long time to have a proper telepresent InMoov.  I believe Lloyd is that.  There is a new branch of MyRobotLab called "lloyd" based off the develop branch.  This is where I'll be continuing work on my customizations without breaking horribly things that are already working.


Audio delay

  Alex (nee Willie nee fred), has decided to grieve me. when he talks the audio is not audible until one or two seconds after it starts. Things like " I asked another robot" come out as "another robot".

  I havae no idea why there is a delay. If you do please let me know. This is irritating.

 

  Thanks

It all gets a bit Meshy

Persistance pays off , ESP8266 Mesh network begins to work, this transmits sensor data from the Time of Flight Laser distancing module and the Compass module to the basestation rover.

The latest Plan (software Workio) :-

1.ProMini + TOF + Compass +ESP8266 sits on top of the 360° rotating Stepper motor (can be any speed literally (just limited up to the max that the TOF and compass can read data))


BoofCV - reloaded ...

Thanks wvantoorn for the link.
It looks like BoofCV is active again ... Woot !

Since there were no updates for a long time I think kwatters and myself lost interest in this project and MRL's corresponding service - http://myrobotlab.org/service/BoofCv


JIMMIE Modeling

Here is a partial sample of the objects that I've created for JIMMIE.  Basically, I am replacing my AIML with JIMMIE objects.  JIMMIE will be part of BioMight's brain.

Work-E has grown antenna

Thanks again to Ray's suggestion, I purchased a $9.00 DC-DC buck converter from Amazon - which will be powering all the 12v devices on Work-E such as the wifi router and the kinect ... Progress !
